They've been doing interior abatement for a couple of months now.
I don't think demolition could start anytime soon?
Just saw this, does this have any implication for the project?
Not really - that building is being incorporated into the development
Site office has been set up in the old Burrito Boys / Smoke's Burritorie space across the street.
Updated renders from the Dev App site:
Height is now 58 storeys, still 186.5 m@DonValleyRainbow
This one is just OK to me. Not one of HP's strongest.
Loving the signature HP curved corner glass -- I'm optimistic Westbank will execute that well. Looks pretty intriguing from street level in general.
But the tower is just uninspired. The pressure continues to mount for Mirvish-Gehry to pick up the aesthetic slack for new towers in the area.

The news and information company has snapped up naming rights and all of the commercial office space in a major redevelopment of the former Southam Press Building.
The development, designed by Hariri Pontarini Architects, also includes a 58-storey residential tower atop the offices...
Hmm? more like 48 storeys atop the offices.....either way great to hear this news
Another win for our city's booming economy! Office space in the core is well in demand!
Once Mirvish + Gehry goes ahead that area is going to be DENSE! 163m, 187m, 275m and 305m within one block!
Walked by earlier today and hoarding is going up around the site. One lane of Adelaide is gone, with the cycle track moved over. This actually looks fairly awkward just west of the site as the cycle track is between a through lane and right turn lane onto Duncan.
I hope that people don't attribute extra travel time caused by this lane reduction to the project that's about to start on King Street...
wow, they did that quick. Adelaide bike lanes were still in their original alignment at 7 last night.
I don't expect this will increase travel times much. University is already the big bottleneck in this stretch, in rush hours cars back up well before this.
